Album Of The Day: Hundred Reasons – Ideas Above Our Station
This album came out in 2002 and Hundred Reasons used to play at Cavern all the time around then, so I must have seen them a fair few times as a little 14 year old shit trying to get into 16+ shows using a NI card. I’m not sure how they thought they could ID under 18 year olds with a card that has no photo on but they did and it never really worked.
Cavern shows were always good back then, small bottle of vodka and a blue bolt from Tesco and then sitting on Cathedral Green trying to keep away from coppers who would poor any alcohol down the drain if they caught you with it. Then after getting suitably drunk wondering over to Cavern, praying you were allowed in and didn’t get caught out trying to buy more drinks inside, usually using the one guy who looked like he might be older than the rest of us. Sometimes we were proper pimps though and went with actual 18 year olds who would keep us supplied all night long.
Basically what I’m trying to say is this album reminds me of underage drinking and cheap vodka.
Best song is “Falter”
